아/어 + 야겠다

From Korean Wiki Project
Jump to: navigation, search

V + 아/어 + 야겠다 : This pattern is used for when you think something is advisable, similar to "had better" or "(I) guess (I) should" or "(I) guess I have to." This pattern is often used in a way to reflect your own personal thought, so the regular 다 ending is often used (i.e. 가야겠다). This is less strong than the other patterns which stress obligation such as V + 아/어 + 야 되다, V + 아/어 + 야지 and V + 아/어 + 야 하다.
